we stopped story center days mused to egypt's opposition calls for more protests as president morsi refuses to scrap the referendum on the new islamist base constitution you've got the latest tonight on mount one also rebels in syria come together under one military command now this is a more global call to prevent the government from using chemical weapons are increasingly seen as a pretext for intervention and how mass opposed to see palestinians liberated is that militant group mark twenty five years in action while israel faces global pressure to stop building more settlements.
1:01 pm
hello and welcome if you're just joining us this is r.t. it's ten pm now here in moscow my name's kevin oh in first egypt's opposition is calling for more protests tonight after president morsi insisted on plowing ahead with a referendum on the new constitution which is viewed by many as discriminatory even its decision to scrap the decree which had granted him almost absolute power was dismissed as a play on words. in cairo for a she says his unexpected u. turn has failed to ease the tensions. it does come as a bit of a surprise at the moment as people were really thinking the president wouldn't move on his stance against the opposition forces demands yesterday saturday they had a meeting which was dubbed the national dialogue meeting between political party leaders the president and his cabinet notably some of the key opposition forces that formed the national salvation front that are behind the protests and sit ins in the last few weeks and not present the results of the controversial decoration
1:02 pm
would be revoked which of course is president morsi sweeping powers this is part of one of the demands of the opposition forces and widely seen as a good move however they are rendered on the constitution which the opposition forces see to be illegitimate as it was drafted by islamist. constituent assembly would go ahead on the fifteenth and this is why the problem lies the opposition forces i replied yesterday saying that the results of the meeting were meaningless as the president hasn't seen to move forward with that demand against this referendum. that it was really just another form of deception this comes out to the minute she stepped up security around the presidential palace in the last few days that you see to statement yesterday saying that they were calling for dialogue as this was the only way to get the nation out of its crisis implying that perhaps they were willing to take a role in the ongoing situation in egypt we've seen quite a lot of violence on the streets since this one second of november when this concert of the decree was announced by the president as rival groups have met in
1:03 pm
class which is led to the deaths of at least seven people on wednesday we have yet to see really what will happen in the in the coming future the president keeps by this referendum but i'm sure that the opposition forces won't move to really even though we had this development yesterday at this meeting they're still looking at a divided egypt's political deadlock well among those on the line he's a jew political. the law is in all wars he's in frankfurt tonight. william leaving teams get some thoughts from you about this and more sees met one of the opposition's key demands now another thing that to create putting him beyond any control was the opposition still insisting on cancelling the referendum and refusing dialogue well i think the whole decree was a saint to begin with so allow the president through by the of the proposed new constitution and then the referendum for the fifteenth of december not given the opposition and the liberal groups and the second verse and so forth time to really
1:04 pm
debate it openly in the country so that voters have an informed choice so this is this is typical of the brotherhood. it's rather reminds of the bringing to power of committee by by richard cotton and other people in the cia back and in the late seventies to control what was a genuine democratic movement in iran at the time against the shah and now you have the brotherhood which is being supported by the state department in the obama administration as it has an analogous the ickle to create a if you will an islamic dictatorship in egypt and a good portion of population wants another so that's what we're having here will morsi going on to say that if the draft constitution is rejected in the referendum will be a nationwide election is not smoke and mirrors as well. you can't really tell because the man is not. he's a master jesuit if you want to call it that in terms of the word formulations that end up meaning nothing except the muslim brotherhood agenda pressing forward and
1:05 pm
experience has shown once they're in power for example in turkey with with the air of one government which is essentially a muslim brotherhood regime under fire to look into who sits and in pennsylvania with the. sanctuary provided by the cia there the turkish government is pressing to remove all the kemalist of the features of the secular state that were put into place by came a lot of talk in the nike twenty's and replace it with a theocracy watch much like one of those did or maybe did in iran so you cannot really take them at their word i mean that's the syria that show with your theory i hear it well but on the face of it what we're presented with on the face of it is clear a large part of the population doesn't support that draft constitution while just cancel referendum start all over again for me was sent to make a new charge well i think if mercy was genuinely honest about his goals he would have done that long ago but they're pushing a black agenda
1:06 pm
a secret agenda much much like. masonry organizations or secret societies where the triads or the the yakuza in japan and so forth they're pushing couldn't agenda on the population and the population rightly still smells a skunk and i think this is the coptic christian groups are threatened if the book brotherhood gets its constitution and imposing sharia law. other groups of the muslims for example sufi places of worship are under attack in egypt and likely will be increasingly so so this is this really is into a major major battle for the future of. democracy in egypt and will be what you say here i guess than ties in the fact that the u.s. hasn't made much comment on the draft constitution even though it's criticize. for undermining basic freedoms by a lot of other people how much does in washington but morsi still wears the red line say if egypt so fledging democracy is stifled from the very start as it appears to be to us well i'm working on a draft of a new book which will be out in
1:07 pm
a box of nine to twelve months. on precisely this whole project from from the u.s. intelligence community over the last twenty years or so but it right now there's less and less blustering out of forward in a nutshell why hasn't the us criticized it more because they're back in their back this is probably one of the most major. intelligence projects of the last fifty years since the us government support of the muslim brotherhood to create islamic fascist regime we want to use that term across the islamic world cross the muslim world from afghanistan down through turkey into saudi arabia qatar and of course egypt and syria thank you for your thoughts we go now great to get to shortly we're out of time to thank you for your thoughts the geopolitical on those women down on the line from frankfurt. syria's rebels have joined forces on the one military command which they hope will unite diverse groups in the western backed struggle against president assad this last week the international community again voiced
1:08 pm
fears that the syrian government could deploy chemical weapons to defeat opposition fighters something damascus denies go shook out assesses whether the chemical arsenal is a real threat or just a pretext for intervention u.s. officials said intelligence agencies have detected that ourselves government has been preparing its chemical weapons stockpiles for possible use the obama administration's message to syria the u.s. is ready to act if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons there will be consequences and you will be held accountable there will be consequences. there will be consequences we have sent an unmistakable message that this would cross a red line next. the media quickly picked up on the alarming news of the syrian government's alleged plans citing secret intelligence for fox news confirms that syrian troops now have the deadly nerve agent sarin gas weaponized and at the ready the syrian government flatly denied the possibility saying it would not use such
1:09 pm
weapons against its people. we would not commit suicide we feel there's a conspiracy to provide a pretext for any subsequent interventions in syria by these countries during creasing pressure on syria the syrian government sure knows that if they use chemical weapons it would give nato and some of their arab neighbors who are itching to intervene in syria the green light to go ahead with their plans the meskins itself says it would be suicidal for them to do so but with the fear and the hype building up over the use of chemical weapons against civilians in syria it seems the u.s. might be preparing grounds to jump the gun on this one you're jumping the gun scenario is not new for the u.s. almost ten years ago the bush administration confidently presented false evidence to invade iraq we have an descriptions of biological weapons factories on wheels and on rails in beijing triggered a civil war that killed more than one hundred thousand innocent iraqis and years
1:10 pm
later all washington had to say about this was the president thought it was correct congress thought it was of course i regret that it turned out a lot of it was wrong in the run up to the iraq invasion the us media was instrumental in selling the case to the public the congress never had any proof ever present. of weapons of mass destruction all came from tony blair to the bush and congress who writes now that the u.s. has drawn a red line on syria it has made it clear it's ready to take action but how i'm not going to telegraph in any specifics what we would do in the event of. a credible evidence that the assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons against their own people but suffice it to say we are certainly planning to. take action if that eventuality were to occur to american warships are
1:11 pm
already near the syrian coast with some. in thousand u.s. marines and dozens of fighter jets on board on top of that nato is sending american german and dutch batteries of patriot anti-aircraft missiles to turkey's border with syria meaning hundreds more u.s. and european troops will be deployed to the frontier nato says deploying patriot missiles along syrian borders is a defensive step to prevent syria from attacking turkey i don't think there's any requirement whatsoever for patriot batteries on the ground in turkey again the patriot missiles are designed to really protect primarily against incoming theatre ballistic missiles or occur if the syrians are not going to attack the turks the turks have the most powerful military establishment in the region the largest army in nato and intervention in syria will be as bad if not worse than what we experienced in iraq the pentagon said they would need seventy five thousand troops to secure syria's weapons of mass destruction the question on everyone's mind is
1:12 pm
are they seriously considering that kind of a mess of intervention because that could mean another you rock coming soon and invasion that could be followed by years of bloody civil war in washington i'm going to check on. data about your private e-mails and anything you look at on the internet could soon end up in police to talk about that so if you live in britain we look at the a draft of snooping bill is getting a furious reaction civil rights come play there's also the break to come us pledges to liberate palestinian lands inch by inch now they're saying israel refuses to abandon its construction. which issues do just what their name implies they get between people and drive them apart like
1:13 pm
a wage and these issues seem to always take the forefront in the media things like abortion gun. rights marijuana legalization and the weather well the weather isn't really a west cost people sure talk about it way too much there's only so much room in the national discourse and these wage issues just eat up all the time and attention but the thing is that there's a little so they call the tenth amendment you know the one that says that any powers that are specifically delegated the federal government are reserved for the states and last time i checked the constitution doesn't have a special weed clause saying that marijuana has to be an all or nothing a national proposal and that goes for abortion and most of the wedge issues also there's a simple answer all these wedge issues just left the states make up their own ma ains but then again without wedge issues what would the mainstream media have to distract us with but that's just my opinion.
1:14 pm
well for the future science technology innovation all the least of elements from around russia we've got the future covered. the gold fever. turns thousands into slaves. my father but also among brotherhood involved in the monsoon and since i started working in amman i stated a lookup. field multi-nationals. a cash cow to be milked dry and if i think that in this country is gold medal logie as an environmental cost which is unacceptable to local business was labelled illegal and controlled by criminals in order to protect our lives our families and to work in peace. most most but we are forced to pay protection to illegal groups what price is colombia going to pay.

1:16 pm
m o's being drawn in britain which would allow police officials to see who people are e-mailing and when they're doing it as well as what they're searching for on the web most polyploid explains for it's causing a big divide between those who say it's vital to catch criminals and campaigners who believe private data should stay just private the way it would work is possed is that the police and security services would have unbridled access to your internet data by obliging mobile phone service providers and internet providers to store that internet history your data for as yet now the government say that it's a necessary move in order to safeguard the public and to fight crime that's being organized through the internet increasingly such as it extremism and paedophile rings but civil liberties groups are up in arms about it they say it's an in range
1:17 pm
mentor of your civil rights they've called it the snoopers charter and we hit the streets of london a little bit to talk to the general public about what they thought of the poor. specter of the government being able to snoop in on that email history their web browsing history and their social networking history let's take a listen to what they told us how would you feel about the police having access to your past internet search history not so good without my consent i think something like gave my consent i wouldn't mind seeing a right to privacy in this. would not be happy for i would mind but only if it was authorized by a magistrate on a very certain condition i think you have to have control of one area of your life or lock them in one area they're just they have access to areas of the home secretary to reason may she's behind the draft bill and she's been lobbying it quite aggressively in some critics saying in rather a bizarre fashion actually she said in an interview with the sun criminals
1:18 pm
terrorists and paedophiles will want m.p.'s to vote against this bill whereas victims of crime police and the public will want them to vote for it and it's a question of whose side you're on now i've got nick pickles who's the director of civil liberties group big brother watching the studio here with me now nick here's something to you on are all the people opposed to this legislation criminals terrorists and paedophiles as the home secretary suggests no it is politically ridiculous to say that everybody opposed this bill force and those categories there are people from every political party senior law enforcement officers technical experts so i think it was a very crude argument when the whole anybody from the home secretary but we've got interpol saying that cyber crime is now one of the fastest growing criminal activities on the planet i mean the government's right for looking for some sort of solution to this growing problem well in the big thing about this bill if you're looking for a needle in a haystack you don't solve
1:19 pm
a problem but it looks more we should have a new powers but they should be used against individuals operations what this bill proposes is the air. everybody in the country's behavior is monitored of which treats the suspects well they have it a very quiet for virtual idea from the home office and one that might all go to down to well with the rest of the government we've got reports that deputy prime minister nick clegg is preparing to oppose it because of the prospect of infringement of civil rights in the u k. bullyboy curb online from us now there's international role reversal going on with a warning over nuclear aggression this time mr randall sounding the alarm against the united states over atomic tests in nevada with washington accusing double standards and snubbing the u.n. nuclear watchdog interesting report on that from us and also what we have here will tell you it's the new mercedes benedict the sixteenth the pope's taken delivery of this new high tech eco friendly set of wheels including a throne for comfortable cruising among the crowds. gaza's hamas
1:20 pm
leadership has vowed to keep fighting until the israeli occupation is over as hundreds of thousands of supporters turned up to celebrate the militant group's twenty fifth anniversary amasses political leader khaled mashal who runs the organization from qatar is now in gaza for the first time in four decades and in a speech labeled as extremist by israel he refused to recognize the jewish state's legitimacy because of its occupation now that visit comes amid a turbulent time for the region to say the least israel has refused to accept an expansion which has been denounced by the international community middle east expert good to molech says israel has even sowed relations with one of its allies germany to. we really made it very clear that we are totally against the continuing new settlements in the west bank and in jerusalem because this will definitely make the two state solution impossible because if this buildings are going on the west bank will be split into the access to jerusalem will not be
1:21 pm
possible for the palestinians any more reaction by mr netanyahu and others were very strong and unusually undiplomatic you could say just before his visit to berlin condemning the stand of germany and the fact that the foreign minister lieberman with some lame excuses did not come to believe to be his counterpart our foreign minister rest of ela also shows that at the moment there are lots. of tensions among politicians in germany and in israel and israel exports tons of fruit and vegetables cosmetics and other goods to the e.u. every year but despite being labeled as made in israel some of those don't exactly originate from there many indeed are produced in settlements considered illegal under international law and now they're calling to ban such exports or at least in force more accurate labeling is artie's peter all over. produce of israel
1:22 pm
except this isn't israel this is the jordan valley in the west bank and this farm is deemed illegal under international law the european union imports around three hundred million dollars worth of products from here each year now a group of twenty two n.g.o.s from across europe is looking to highlight the issue and it's published a report in which it claims e.u. imports make the settlements viable because they are produced in illegal settlements which are contrary to international humanitarian law should be banned out of the european union now if this is not possible at least the consumers have to have the possibility to. decide for themselves if they want to buy products which have been produced in illegal settlement you'll see farmers this is a much concerned by the thoughts of european n.g.o.s he says he's here because his government told him it was ok to be here. i was told he.
